Decorating for Fall with Antique Accessories

F-1Fall is the time of the year when the earth rewards us with splendid bounty, and nature springs forth with tapestry of color.  It is also the season to entertain, so I love to decorate with rich colors of autumn for special gatherings of the season.  To make my holiday table special I often use antique accessories to enkindle unique and memorable settings.  The warm tones of this period remind me of a Dutch still life with an earthy and comforting palate.  I use antiques as my inspiration and my guide.  The earthy warmth of pottery and the bright glow of copper only add to harvest-hued arrangements.  These culinary antiquesare natural centerpieces in this season of gourmet entertainment.fallculinaryantiques

An Autumn inspired decorating tip: To put together this vignette I varied the texture with a warm pallet using earthy antique French pottery in contrast to the soft glow of antique copper accessories and amber glass oil lantern. I made two arrangements, one in monochromatic harvest greens and the other with seasonal golds and reds. Apples in the display carry the crimson color of Louisiana spider lilies throughout the display. The rustic farm table and antique door created a perfect backdrop for this seasonal vignette.

Wishing you an exciting and uplifting autumn!
